Study abroad

Natalia dawson, spain

All of our BA Spanish students spend a year abroad in Spain, or another Spanish-speaking country.

You'll make substantial linguistic progress acquiring a deeper knowledge and appreciation of your host country, whilst helping you to develop personally and professionally.

How we support you

You'll have access to support and advice before, during and after your study abroad year and you’ll be able to network with returning students for first-hand advice about living overseas. You'll also have meetings with the residence abroad tutor and access to online information before you relocate.

We'll be in touch with you during your year abroad and you'll have support at your host institution too. On your return, we'll ask you to share your experiences and make the most of your new and improved skills and experience.
